issues that have come up in this campaign where romney's position, he articulated in republican primaries, the republican party platform is totally at odds of a wide majority of the public is. we've seen that, for instance, on protection with people with preconditioning conditions and not included in any proposal romney's put forward. when confronted with that, he denies it. same on immigration, platform is far to the right. in the debate, talking about arizona as a national model, he denied he said it. i do wonder if he's pressed on it, forced to answer on it, if he doesn't do that song and dance again, honestly, i i think it's worked fairly well for him in the last month playing the game that way. >> isn't it hard for him to deny it when we have footage of him saying it at one of the debates? i just played the footage. we do a great job here but i'm sure we're not the only show that has the foot aage. he can't put this on the republican platform. >> and mitt romney has shown a remarkable ability to etch-a-sketch. he can literally say on monday something the opposite of what he

republicans across this country. they want romney in because here is what romney is promising. one, he's going to do away with the tax breaks for wind energy but keep it for oil. he is going to do away with the fuel economy standards that increase the efficiency of the vehicles we drive up to 55 miles per gallon backing out 6 billion metric tons of co2, back out 3 million barrels of oil per day from the persian gulf, all the oil we import. the koch brothers want romney, and romney has promised, to roll back the fuel economy incentives. it's going to endanger young men and women who have to go to the middle east to import the oil. >> professor, back in the '60s we called such people pigs. pigs. no, really. they don't care about the planet, don't care about the destruction of war, all they care about is their stuff. and they want more of it. is that what we're talking about, greed? i'm not talking about the coal miner, that's hard work. i'm talking about people who won't listen to you or science because they want more stuff? >> listen, chris, i'm not into name calling here. >> well, i am.

saying that mitt romney during the republican primary debates may have said that he would actually cut back on fema which is not as unpopular as it once was. >> he said he wanted to move as much of that responsibility to the states and to private contributions as possible. so he's getting hit for that right now. what would mitt romney's fema look like? would it be as well funded as the current organization? there's about $7 billion in the bank right now. if mitt romney and republicans were in control in congress there is a question as to how they would handle disaster relief. generally speaking they've not wanted to spend as much money on that. certainly when they do spend money on disaster relief they want to offset it usually meaning cut back on other services that the government provides in order to pay for it. democrats tend to want to tax a little more for that or add to the deficit because of the emergency. >> ifill: chris christie as the governor of new jersey who the president will be traveling with tomorrow looking at hurricane damage, you can only assume that that will be

mitt romney are taking a break from campaigning in respect to the storm's victims. the president returned to washington to oversee the cleanup of the super storm. mitt romney is also scrapping his plans. the republican presidential nominee and running mate paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. the campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of his rallies to donate to the red cross. many area residents will not be able to vote early because of sandy. governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting centers to be closed for a second day. he ordered early voting extended through december 2nd to make up for the missed days. >>> 6:18 now. air travel both nationally and internationally remains crippled by sandy's impact. all flights going out of reagan and dulles remain cancelled until further notice. leaving the few passengers who are there to wait out the airports, which do remain open with limited staffing. right now there aren't any planes on the ground there either. they were moved to other airports in other cities

a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> hurricane sandy has certainly whipped up all sorts of trouble for people trying to get in and out of the washington d.c. region, no amtrak or marc service. most flights from our three major airports have all been canceled. fox 5's paul wagner joins us live now from union station with the latest there. >> reporter: the news here at union station is not too good. nothing's moving and based on a conversation i had with a spokesperson for amtrak earlier today, things for tomorrow aren't looking so good either. inside union station this afternoon there was no ambiguity on the message boards. it was crystal clear. riding the rails a day after sandy left town was not to be, a fact that left some stranded passengers a bit miffed. >> i got a voice message from amtrak outside of alexandria, virginia, that i couldn't get home from washington to chicago. i could have stayed in orlando. >> reporter: that's got to be very frustrating. >> it is frustrating and i'm missing halloween

? >> these are not my words. these are governor romney but these are from the republican primaries when he was a bit more free to express his, quote unquote, severely conservative views that he is now trying to hide a bit more in the general election, and trying to win swing voters and independent voters, and this was not too long after the major tornado in missouri the earthquake in virginia. these are not abstract theoretical disasters. he was asked what should the federal government do? and in the zeal of the republican party running as far as it can to the right, he said not only it is immoral for the federal government to keep doing this, but they should evolve down to the state or even privatize it. >> how it is that government officials don't appreciate what an effective government program can do? i know we have had a lot of problems, but the whole concept behind government is to be the entity that is not profit driven but community oriented. >> exactly, does he prefer a private institution that wants to make a profit off of people suffering. >> so he basically -- >> sorry.

president obama and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are reasons for it, which are very significant in and of themselves. i would like to retu
